US: BJ’s Wholesale Club Taps CommerceHub For E-Commerce Growth

BJ’s Wholesale Club has selected to use the unified platform of CommerceHub, a distributed commerce network for retailers and brands, to drive omni-channel growth.

CommerceHub has a network of thousands of brands and distributors, which in 2015 powered an estimated $11.6 billion in gross merchandise value through the platform.

BJ’s selected CommerceHub to implement its virtual inventory solution. The platform will coordinate the process of buying, storing and shipping inventory from CommerceHub’s network of approximately 9,500 drop-ship suppliers that receive orders and ship products directly to consumers. BJ’s intends to also deploy CommerceHub’s customer-centric performance measurement capability which helps provide greater visibility and control over supplier network compliance for on-time shipments and deliveries.

BJ’s said the move will help provide its members with great value and great products.  The company added: “We’re committed to delivering uncompromising value to our Members, and CommerceHub is a strong partner. Its simplified platform, robust technology, and extensive network allow CommerceHub to help us manage our existing network and onboard new vendors as we continue to meet our Members’ unique demands.”
